Question about 1994 Volkswagen Jetta
The battery was disconnected, so now the radio is in SAFE mode. The woman who owned the car before me gave me a note with info on how to take it off safe mode but it doesn't seem to be working since its still in safe mode. The note said to hold down mode and scan at the same time until "safe" is no longer on the screen then it when on to say certain numbers to push but her writing was hard to read. When i tried holding down mode and scan the screen blinked "safe" then nothing. I would really like to have a radio again please help me in fixing this problem.
Thanks so much
Hey.. i just had the same thing happen... bought a 1994 Jetta.. radio in safe mode... so i went online and found out.. hold scan mode and the arrows after your preset station button.. then after like 3 secs or so you'll see " 000" on the display.. use the preset buttons.. 1,2,3, and 4 to change the display to enter your code :D if you lost your code go to VW dealer and pull radio out and see service center .. carry VIN code in as well and they can look up your code.. takes like 5 mins and is FREE,,, man i love that word :D

After u hold those two buttons down there are 4 numbers u hate to enter, example 0997.
Check to see those 4 numbers she gave u and enter them.
Without those 4 numbers u cant unlock it.
One trick i have heard but never tested myself is remove the radio and put it in the freezer over night, supposedly it resets the radio and deprograms it, but i doubt it works.
to remove the radio( should u need to)
is take a METAL clothes hanger, but 2 6 inch or so sections and bend them in half in a U shape. If u notice ur radio, on each side of it there are 2 holes in a verticle position. Insert ur 2 u shaped pins u made and push em into those holes. This allows u to remove the radio. Good luck.
